Volunteers are needed every day in our community and you can help! There's no one cause for the issues we face — and no single solution. But, when we LIVE UNITED, we can make a real difference. So whether you join the 3,000 volunteers who took part in last year’s Days of Caring, or lend a hand through one of our local programs, you help us act as one to take on the problems facing our community.

Local Volunteer Opportunities
Days of Caring
    If you have an hour or two a week, you can help a child struggling to read … to succeed! Programs are held in Euclid on Monday and Wednesday mornings and in Maple Tuesday and Thursday afternoons.  Get the details.

    Business Volunteers Unlimited serves as the community's clearinghouse for volunteer opportunities that address such issues as homelessness, the environment, crisis support, youth and families, people living with disabilities, seniors and more. Their online database makes it easy for individuals and groups to identify volunteer opportunities that match their skills, interest, location and availability. Find volunteer opportunities now.

    Greater Cleveland Volunteers recruits, places and supports volunteers age 18 and older to help at a variety of local nonprofit organizations. GCV connects individuals or groups to regular (ongoing) volunteer opportunities as well as short-term and one-time (special event) opportunities at over 200 local organizations. Greater Cleveland Volunteers also manages the Cleveland chapters of the national Retired and Senior Volunteer Program and the Experience Corps program. Visit their website to see how you can get involved.

    HandsOn Northeast Ohio (NEO) makes it easy for individuals of all ages, families and groups (business, civic and faith-based) to volunteer for projects that meet critical needs and build capacity of local nonprofit agencies. HandsOn NEO is the official Volunteer Action Center of Greater Cleveland and an affiliate of the HandsOn Network. HandsOn NEO manages each volunteer experience through their signature Managed Projects Program and seven National Days of Service. Through their online project calendar, volunteers can sign up and attend projects based on their schedule and interests.

    The United Way Days of Caring program is at the heart of connecting volunteers to local nonprofit organizations.
